Argon - Argon - The Argon - Argon method is used for dating geological, fossil and archaeological specimens. Its main advantage is that it is equally useful along a very wide time spectrum, unlike other techniques. It is based on the natural decay of Potassium 40, a natural isotope that has a half-life of 1.250 million years. The specimen is irradiated with neutrons to transform Potassium 40 y Argon 39; then, the quantity of each Argon isotope is measured and compared, and from that comparison, the age of the sample can be established with a high degree of precision.
